Meet our trustees
Our Trustees are a passionate and highly experienced group of individuals who meet formally four times a year to ensure that nothing but the best decisions are made for 3Pillars and its staff, volunteers, and participants.
They have many years of experience in relevant sectors, from education, sport and the Armed Forces, to law and risk management.
Below you will find a short biography of our Trustees, without whom our work would not be possible.
